Anthony Chelimo: Let There be Security in Kerio Valley

By John Kariuki

Elgeyo Marakwet Gubernatorial Candidate Engineer Anthony Chelimo has called for the security organs to beef up security in the Kerio Valley which has in the recent past witnessed banditry and loss of life.

Speaking Exclusively to The Times, the sharp Honorable Chelimo said that once given the mandate on the 9th of August, he will work towards restoring the much elusive peace in the region

“My approach is going to be different in that I will address the root cause of the problem. To start with, I will work closely with the security apparatus in a bid to establish the source of the weapons. Through such a pragmatic approach, I will be able to address the problem once and for all,” Engineer Chelimo said.

Engineer Chelimo also doubles up as the Leader of the National Vision Party. In his elaborate manifesto, Engineer Chelimo promised to make an economic transformation for Elgeyo Marakwet County.

“My  blue print manifesto for  Elgeyo Marakwet county includes Education, Agriculture, value addition, security, roads and infrastructure, health, employment,  youth tenders and entrepreneurship.

I have also promised to revive and strengthen co-operative societies and to build a storage and value addition plant in the ward to help farmers maximise potato profits from their farms and to caution them from exploitation by middlemen. The plant will also employ youths from the area.”

He continued to say, “My people of Elgeyo-Marakwet I know most people who are dissatisfied and discouraged feel hopeless because they haven’t grasped a vision for themselves. As a leader,   I want to help others discover their dreams and then get moving.

I’m  ready to  recognize much of the potential of the people  I’ll be leading and know more about them than I know right now . To help them recognize the destination they will be striving for, I’ll utilize peer to peer  coaching  to know what really matters to them. To do that, I need your blessings and support for this journey.”

 The humble incoming Governor called for peace as we approach the general elections. From the Times Online desk, we wish him the very best.
